Award - Lucky TAS of 2019Award - NES TAS of 2019
Arkanoid (1987) strongly resembles the arcade game Breakout (1976). In Arkanoid, the paddle is actually a spaceship, and the bricks are space walls. The goal of the game is to break through the space walls and defeat the villainous Doh in order to escape from the space labyrinth.

Chef Stef improves the previous TAS by 1 minute and 15.62 seconds, thanks to much better optimisation in many stages. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Watch this TAS being played back on a real console.

This is the second in a series of seminal platformers for the PlayStation, with very similar gameplay to its predecessor.

This run by Chef Stef improves on the previous movie by 11:30.84 minutes. It finishes the game fast without abusing any major glitches. There is also a run that uses this glitch and completes the game even faster.

Award - Funny TAS of 2013
Super Scribblenauts is the sequel to Scribblenauts, a puzzle game for the DS consisting of spawning any object from a database of thousands of possibilities (from "chair" to "God") to solve given situations. It is fundamentally the same game with two major novelties: the possibility to add adjectives (a color, a size, a state, etc.) to the objects we want to summon and the possibility to use the D-Pad to control Maxwell, the protagonist of both games, in addition to the touch screen, the only possible input method in the first installment.

This TAS completes the 10 main worlds of Super Scribblenauts. Speed is not the main goal; instead, the levels are completed in funny or unusual ways.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
- Genre: Puzzle
Mario vs. Donkey Kong is an evolution of the ever popular Donkey Kong franchise that pits Jumpman (aka Mario) yet again against the ape Donkey Kong. This time, Mario faces puzzling levels that require him to hit switches that activate/deactivate colored walls in an attempt to save the Mini-Mario toys.

The author, Chef Stef, abuses game physics and collision detection to complete the levels in record time. Using a series of new glitches and strategies, he also beats his previous run by almost seven and a half minutes.
